Keshena Resident Jasmine Neosh
Is Named CMN Student of the Year


Jasmine Neosh

Jasmine Neosh has been named the College of Menominee Nation’s American Indian College Fund Student of the Year for 2019.


Neosh, who earned an Associate Degree in Natural Resources from CMN in May 2018, is continuing her studies at the Keshena campus for a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Public Administration.


CMN President Paul Trebian praises Neosh for both her academic and service work at the College: “Jasmine is an outstanding student scholar who would deserve the Student of the Year recognition on that basis alone. Her commitment to her tribe, the global community, and critical environmental issues are bonus points in her favor. She is an asset to the College and we know she will be doing exceptional work wherever her future career takes her.”


An honors student through her time at CMN, Neosh has earned scholarships including the Land Tenure Foundation’s Spirit of Sovereignty Scholarship and the Nation Builders Scholarship sponsored by Menominee Tribal Enterprises. She has been active with student-sponsored projects on recycling and led efforts to enact a campus-wide policy against the use of disposable polystyrene products. Other recent activities include service as a research assistant for Professor Dennis Vickers on planning for a new baccalaureate degree program. In early spring semester, Neosh joined President Trebian and leaders from other tribal colleges in Washington, D.C., for meetings with Wisconsin and other legislators. Most recently, she participated on the College’s Knowledge Bowl team that took first place in the national student conference of the American Indian Higher Education Consortium.


Neosh graduated from high school in Chicago and attended Loyola University and Columbia College there before transferring to CMN. An enrolled member of the Menominee tribe, she is the daughter of Luane Neosh and Arthur Barrios.
